Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibitions 2015

Excitement is building at Brides Up North HQ and there’s a frisson of confetti in the air.

Is it really that time again?

We are so excited to get started with another fabulous Brides Up North exhibition season, and this spring, it’s going to be bigger, busier and more beautiful than ever.

You can view the full schedule of events – spanning three regions (North East, North West and Yorkshire) over three months - by clicking here. You can use our drop down menu to browse, select the event of your choice, pre-register for free entry and your VIP goody bag and pop the date in your diary.  You can even register for more than one event if you like – each is very different and we’ve made sure that there is something to delight everyone!

We’ve said it before but we don’t just work with any old  venues or suppliers.  Our venue portfolio is carefully managed to offer our readers choice and quality, and our exhibitors are handpicked. We cover every detail – dresses, menswear, stationery, cars, photographers, videographers, rings, accessories, bridesmaids, finishing touches, entertainment, photobooths, love lights, flowers, favours, hair and beauty… the list goes on. You’ll leave our events excited and inspired (and maybe a little poorer – but happier)! We promise you that.

Just click here to check out this lovely line up…

See you there?

October 11th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Nostell Priory Luxury Wedding Exhibition Autumn 2013

Well, well, well  it’s been one exciting week so far – a fantastic show last weekend at the gorgeous The Mansion in Roundhay Park where over 160 brides and their families turned out to meet our fabulous exhibitors, then a blink and you’ll miss it trip to London to pick up our first ever Wedding Blog Award for “Best Big Day Inspiration” from National glossy Wedding Magazine. It’s all a bit of a blur, really.  Is it really only Wednesday?!

Lucky for us, the weekend isn’t going to end on an anti-climax, as we’ve got our really rather lovely luxury wedding exhibition at the beautiful, exclusive use venue that is Nostell Priory this Sunday.  Hurrah!

Diary Date: Say “I Do” At The Deep!

January 16th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

The Deep

.

.

Are you a Yorkshire bride searching for a quirky and unique wedding venue that can still provide a tailored wedding package?  Look no further than Brides Up North sponsor The Deep, Hull. 

.

There’s nothing fishy about it… (yep, I went there).

.

Becky, at The Deep says: When you think of The Deep, you probably just imagine an aquarium in the city centre filled with children. But what many people don’t realise is that we are licensed to hold weddings, civil ceremonies and receptions. We provide a range of options for people seeking an unforgettable and unique venue for their wedding.

.

Couples can get married at some fantastic locations within the building, including in front of our Endless Ocean tank with sharks, rays and other amazing species as their backdrop, or in the glass observatory with stunning views overlooking the River Humber.

.

To showcase our superb wedding facilities we are holding our third Wedding Fayre on Thursday 24th January 2013 from 7pm to 10pm, where brides, grooms, their families and friends are invited to experience the best our region has to offer in order to make their dream day happen.

.

.

The Deep

.

.

This well established exhibition is one of the biggest in the area since being launched in 2010 and will see over 40 exhibitors in attendance, as well as two catwalk shows.

.

If you are dress hunting then visit Jacqueline’s, It’s All About the Dress, Ella D and Sewing Solutions – offering a range of styles from modern to classic, contemporary to vintage. And not forgetting the men, Anthony’s Menswear and Day’s Menswear will also be exhibiting.

.

All brides and grooms want to look their best on their special day so have a chat with Kelly Clark Hair, Helen Guy Make Up Artist and Wide Smile Teeth Whitening.

.

.

The Deep

.

.

A whole host of car suppliers will be parked up including; Silverlane Wedding Cars, offering chauffeured British cars such as Rolls Royce and Jaguars; Spotlight Limo Cruisers, with a 16 seat limo cruiser; Marshalls, who specialise in vintage Humber cars; Hull Wedding Cars, with modern Mercedes and a Porsche Boxter and The Alternative Wedding Car Company for those wanting something a bit different.

.

If you’re looking for a photographer to capture your special day, then consider Karl Andre Photography of Willerby, Insight Photography of South Cave or Class Images of Lincolnshire. And for those searching for a videographer, we have Wedding HD and Eternal Edits. Or you may want to think about a photo booth from Booth 22.

.

.

The Deep

.

.

When it comes to entertainment, there is something to suit all tastes; from casino tables from Casino Knights to John Morton Magician, Party Time, vintage songstress Ruth Getz, Rock and Soul Machine, complete disco packages from Trackback Mobile Disco or softer music from The Parisi String Quartet.

.

If you’re looking for stylish venue dressing, then look no further than Ambience Venue Styling or A Perfect Wedding… and why not top off your stunning venue with a superb chocolate fountain from The Chocolate Fountain Experience, beautiful cakes from Cakes by Leni or The Cake Stylist, balloons from the amazing Airy Fairies, flowers from The Peppertree in Swanland, hand crafted invites from Invites for All, beautiful items from Elegant Touches and gorgeous rings from Gladstones Jewellers, Smooch Wedding Rings and Inspired Scilly or a honeymoon from The Co-operative Travel.

.

.

The Deep

.

.

It’s totally FREE to attend the event. All you need to do is pre-register your attendance by clicking here, and this automatically enters you into a prize draw to win some amazing gifts from The Deep’s exhibitors.

.

.

Brides to be, some dates for your diaries if I may!

.

After just closing a super successful and inspirational Autumn season of Brides Up North events (we do do ‘em best, even if I do say so myself), I can’t believe that we are already looking ahead to 2013 here at Brides Up North HQ.  My inbox is already absolutely awash with enquiries from the regions’ best wedding suppliers, reserving their places at what look set to be an absolutely smashing series of Brides Up North shows in the New Year -  I think I might be up until the early hours this evening!  I can’t wait to get planning, and to see you – my lovely readers – at one or more of our events.  Do say hello if you see me!

.

You know I’ll be reminding you about each and every one of these fabulous dates nearer the time, so for now, just mark ‘em in that calendar, and get on with browsing the rest of the pretty I have coming up for you on these pages.  There’s a lot of it…

.

If you are a wedding supplier reader (*waves hello!*) you can find out more or request a booking form by email me julia@bridesupnorth.co.uk – we are working through your enquiries as fast as we possibly can.  The sooner the better to register your interest, we work on a first come, first served basis and strictly limit our suppliers by category.  Watch out for a few more dates and venues being announced soon too!  I can’t wait to add some new regional talents to add to our amazing supplier database in 2013.

.

Roll on the Northern Revolution in 2013!  Yee-hah!
